I think it's nothing unusual, I'm sure many people talk about Meffert's minx, chinaminx, etc. I'd be surprised if I'm the first to use the term in this thread, but I guess I might be.
I never call it a minx. I use minx when I want to describe the minx family: pyraminx, megaminx, starminx, pyraminx crystal, skewb etc.

I don't get why you should call a megaminx, minx, but the pyraminx a pyra, I call them pyra and mega.

Well, perhaps the main difference is that I don't generally talk about pyraminx and I can't remember when I last solved one, so it's never something I really take into account. I agree that in general it's not the best notation, but as long as it's not used ambiguously it manages to work. I don't just refer to it as minx when it would be ambiguous, such as at a comp.
